MBF Child Safety Matters

The Monique Burr Foundation for Children received coverage in a Florida Times Union editorial titled, “Local nonprofit is making impressive strides to preventing child abuse,” published Nov. 17, 2015.

Visit this link to read the editorial.  Some highlights from the editorial include:

The Monique Burr Foundation for Children was founded in 1997 by Edward Burr to continue the work of his late wife, Monique Burr, a devoted child advocate. The foundation is dedicated to protecting children from child abuse and bullying by providing the best prevention education programs.

In the Duval County public schools alone, this prevention education is being provided to every pupil in kindergarten to sixth grade as well as kids in all but 12 of Florida’s 67 counties.

This impressive work is ably carried out in inspiring fashion by the Monique Burr Foundation, a local nonprofit whose Child Safety Matters program is winning national acclaim for its revolutionary approach to educating children to avoid being victimized by abuse — and, equally important, empowering those who have been abused to report it and prevent it from ever happening again
